Karachi, which was once the primitive humble mud-cap of Sindhi fishermen, is now a deafening metropolitan economy that sustains the country with its huge seaports. Always up and running, the streets of Karachi are a cluster of colorful buses, restless people, and the contagious energy of its daily hustle.
But is there any allure here that will make you forget the entire muddle? Yes! And I have gathered 5 of them for you.
I have spent almost my entire life in this extravagant city. Yeah, you can find a lot about this city in just a click of a button. But why not follow someone who is familiar with every corner of this never-ending city?
What Karachities Feel About Their City?
Living in Karachi my entire life, there is a particular perspective every resident of Karachi is familiar about. Unlike other cities in Pakistan, Karachi has a raving nightlife. Long after midnight, you’ll still see people enjoying food, or just have a long walk at the beach. Diversity is what drives this city.
There are numerous areas for specific communities. The moment you enter those streets, you instantly get a glimpse of the culture by its food and attire and especially the lingo.
Karachi is the blend of both elite-class lifestyle with fine dining restaurants, 5-star hotels, and shopping to a more modest middle-class lifestyle.
If you enjoy all things sea, then Churna Island, which is only a one-hour drive away from central Karachi, is a must-visit. Here is where you can snorkel and scuba dive around the island’s reef and peek at a multitude of sea creatures, from fish to turtles that inhabit its warmish waters.
I recommend this place to every tourist who is looking for some adventure. The tour packages range from two to three hours to a full-day as well.
Art and culture come to play at this 20th-century manor built by a Hindu Prince in 1925. Used today as an art gallery and museum, there are always refreshing exhibitions happening at this marvelous building surrounded by trees and Renaissance-style statues. The Rajasthani-style architecture of this structure is a sight to behold.
If you are a history, I will highly recommend this place. It takes you to a journey about Karachi and its pre-partition era.
Quaid-E-Azam House Museum
Being the founder of the nation, Quaid-e-Azam’s personal history completely meshed with the history of the country itself. Stop at this museum to embark on that journey or to admire the colonial building and the enchanting gardens around.
I suggest this place to every traveler, because of its history associated with the republic’s founder. How much he struggled to get a separate state from the British colonies to his lesser-known lifestyle.
Turtle Spotting at Turtle Beach
Not only are winters are an amazing season to Visit Karachi because of its delicate cold weather, but also because it’s the season when you can observe turtles at Turtle Beach. This coast is home to green sea turtles that come out to mate and lay their eggs in the sands. It’s also a favorable picnic spot.
I love this place because of its calm and peaceful atmosphere, it makes you forget about the ever-busy city life, and relax.
Dating back to the 19th Century, the Frere Hall building reminiscence’s the time when Pakistan was a piece of the British Indian colony. Surrounded by lavish green gardens, today, the building operates as a library and an art gallery.
Architecture by Henry Saint Clair Wilkins, Frere Hall is located in the Saddar territory, which is also home to other scenic colonial architecture.
So here were my suggestions if you want to visit Karachi.
